So you don't know how to get rid of that ugly background thing from your awesome picture. Well, there are a few options you can do to fix this.
First, be aware that you can actually download free "renders", which are images already cut and background free, from some great sites.
Once you have your downloaded render, in order to select your render, click the Magic Wand Tool, click on black or white background (or any other part you wish to not keep), click Select < Inverse. Then Copy and Paste onto a new image for your signature.
If you already have your heart set on a specific image, then you can always cut it yourself. I know, such a novelty. Just be prepared to give yourself a few hours to accomplish your newfound goal.
Now, there are a few different ways to accomplish this task.
1. Quick Masking
Now, personally my favorite way it can be accomplished is by using the Pen Tool.
2. Pen Tool
I hope this tutorial has helped the beginners to Photoshop, as well as those more experienced. Be sure to keep an eye out for future tutorials, and if you ever have any questions do not hesitate to message me. Have fun making your signatures!
